Default Re: Why is this site more active than HT.com?

In general, a much higher signal to noise ratio. I find a lot of the main posters here are more knowledgeable than the average poster on HT.com. This site gets fewer drive-by posters, and even the fans of other teams who post here almost always post at least semi-thoughtful things. I think part of it is that you have to actually work a bit more to find this site, so it's one that is more likely to get the more diehard fans interested in more in-depth discussions, rather than the enthusiastic though not too deep posts on the main HT site.

Honestly, though, it's been a long time since I've even read the boards at HT.com. I finally stopped reading them once I realized I was getting nothing out of them that I wasn't already getting here. I'm guessing a lot of other people have come to the same conclusion, and so the people who are going to read/post most regularly have migrated elsewhere.

This board used to be the official board at HT.com. When HT.com decided to change up the board someone over here pulled some strings to rescue the old board and it's history to move it over here. Most of the fans moved with it. That is why this board has more history and more active members.

The nice thing about this board is it is run by the fans. We don't have to worry about any corporation screwing with it or regulating it.

Yes. When the Texans revamped their board a couple of years ago, their message board did not work for awhile. Some nice poster told me about this site, and many of us jumped. I saw all the familiar names, so I stayed. I still post over there, but this board is better, IMO.

IMHO the old board is overrun with young posters who really don't talk too much football.

Hookum hit the nail on the head! REGULATIONS!! Thanks to Hookum we have a private board dedicated to the fans! A lot more freedom here than on the main MB. I bet those mods over there have someone jerking their chains all the time.

As long as you stay out of the NSZ forum, this is the best board in the NFL!! J/K! It's the best board anyway!!!

Default Re: Why is this site more active than HT.com?

at least for me this site seems to have ppl with more football knowledge. I also get tired of the trade this player for this one.

I remember some posters over there said we should trade DeMeco to get some draft picks then just draft another MLB. They seem to think it is like Madden or sumthing. I'll have to look but i swear I saw a similar thing for AJ on HT's boards.

Yeah I was devastated a few years back when the news came that the main HT.com message board was receiving an overhaul. I made the switch (it sucked) for a few weeks until I got an email from Vinny (I am pretty sure he was the one) that this site was opening up with a ton of the old members. Needless to say, I haven't looked back.

The HT.com board is just way too silly for me. This place is filled with good people that know their football. Its the best MB I have ever been a member of.
